If you look at a pro cyclist’s bike, you’ll see that they always have cut steerer tubes. Let’s face it; no-one wants to have a large protrusion above their stem. Only cut your steerer tube if you have settled on your position on the bike!

To fix this, you’ll need to cut the steerer tube. It’s a daunting job, but provided you have the right tools; a hacksaw and a cutting guide, you’ll be able to get that pro look.

GCN’s pro tip is to leave enough for a 5mm spacer on top of your stem.
